#CIVILPUNKYOGA is a special workshop which extends the twice-weekly Kali Yoga #PUNKROCKYOGA classes at Bootleg Theater with the intention of congregating and healing en masse. What is #PUNKROCKYOGA? Radical inclusivity of a healing and wellness practice that is accessible to all ages, ability, genders and identity. What will #CIVILPUNKYOGA workshop be like? In this workshop, we carve out space in our lives for connecting with our community in order to discuss pressing issues, increase communication by learning conflict resolution using age-old yoga sutras, create boundaries by implementing visualizations, and end with a restorative, healing yoga practice which incorporates light partner work. Gathering in this way amplifies healing by creating connection, civility, communion. A crystal punk gift bag will be provided to set and share intentions.

Taleen Kali teaches #PUNKROCKYOGA and #HANGOVERYOGA every Wednesday and Sunday at 12pm at Bootleg Theater. The Kali Yoga practice is inclusive of all levels, bodies, genders, ages, and abilities and no one is turned away for lack of funds. Taleen discovered yoga in 2012 at Yoga Blend studio in Burbank. The practice helped realign her body, mind and spirit–lessons she kept close while recovering from multiple arm injuries that led to taking a break from playing guitar. After healing and strengthening with the help of yoga, Taleen resumed playing music and decided to train as a yoga teacher, enrolling in Yoga Blend’s 200 hour teacher training. She chose the name Kali Yoga for her teachings–”Kali” being her stage name representing love for her native California, as well as a nod to the Hindu goddess of revolution. Specializing in yoga for musicians and artists, her intention is to bring mindfulness and reduced suffering to anyone who is open to allowing the power of breathwork, movement and sound into their lifestyle practice.

 While most WCCW programming is free or donation-based, with no one turned away for lack of funds, we do offer some workshops that have fees associated. This covers materials and allows us to pay the leaders of these workshops for their time and expertise, and to put a small percentage back into WCCW. This income, in addition to memberships, is what lets us keep the doors open and the lights on. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested though, so we also offer volunteer opportunities and free community tickets to each event or workshop (number varies depending on capacity of the class).
